Late Cretaceous mammal fossils from North America

Could someone help me find PDFs of scientific papers about mammal fossils from the Campanian-Maastrichtian of North America? I'm specifically interested in papers that deal with mammal faunas from the Hell Creek Formation, the Lance Formation and the Dinosaur Park Formation...

Thanks for any help :)

Christian,

 

You want to start looking for related papers by William Clemens and then look for papers by his co-authors.  You might want to get some of his early papers to familiarize yourself with the history of the research.  You should try contacting any of those authors still publishing directly.  You'd be surprised how many researchers there are who are happy to send PDF's of their work.  In the old days researchers sent out reprints (print-outs of their papers) by snail mail.

 

There is an old volume titled, "Mesozoic Mammals: The First Two-thirds of Mammalian History" from 1979.  I don't know if that's available as a PDF but you need to read that.  You might find it cheap somewhere.  You might find it in a university library with a decent paleo section.

Trust me, that's a strategy I routinely use ;) I'm just new to the field of Cretaceous mammals, so I didn't even know which authors to contact...

Thanks for the various suggestions!

Here’s one about the Dinosaur Park Formation mammals.
